MEDICINE HAT, AB – Eight breweries located in cities and towns along Highway 3 in Southern Alberta – aka the Highway 3 Ale Trail – have announced the release of a new collaborative beer in partnership with Tourism Lethbridge, Tourism Medicine Hat, and the South Canadian Rockies Tourism Association.
Southern Exposure is a “Southern Alberta Pale Ale” that was brewed at Medicine Hat Brewing Company with the participation of fellow Medicine Hat breweries Hell’s Basement and Travois Ale Works, as well as Theoretically Brewing and Spectrum Ale Works in Lethbridge, Stronghold Brewing in Fort Macleod, Oldman River Brewing in Lundbreck, and The Pass Beer Company in Blairsmore.
As described as Kelti Baird, managing owner of Theoretically Brewing:
It was a really fun day of hanging out with other brewers and talking about the industry and learning a little bit more about each other and out of it came a great beer which we’re looking forward to sharing. With locally sourced ingredients from around the region, the beer showcases not only the talented workers that brewed it, but how ingredients from Alberta can also make a great tasting beer. It would be awesome if local folks would support their local breweries and try craft beer for the first time if they haven’t before. It’s a different flavour than what a lot of the domestics produce and it supports your local community.
Southern Exposure will be available starting this week at all eight Highway 3 Ale Trail breweries while supplies last.
